Physics at ANU: Einstein and Relativity

This program involves the use of simulations using Real Time Relativity to model and observe the effects of travelling at speeds close to that of light.

The session also features the use of a Michelson Interferometer, observation of the Doppler Effect using sound and a visit to the Gravitational Wave Research.

There may also be an opportunity for our scientists to link into the National Curriculum.
